  1. Mikee did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    No one has to whine about the pricing policy anymore.
    What is going on here promotes the price increase!
    If you buy the bottle for less than € 350 and then sell it for a multiple.
    A dealer is stupid if he sells the bottle for the normal price!
    Finally stop the shit and drink the stuff, it's for that !!

    Sorry had to be

  2. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Better finish and more balance than the Munich, therefore one point more.
    • Nose
      Somewhat more elegant and sedate than Munich, which means at> 63% of course it still has a very full aroma, pure vanilla pod, consumed whole, brown sugar, apricot, Madeira wine, lychee, banana, sweet tobacco, later passion fruit and mango are added , Cream, butter, some toasted nuts
    • Taste
      Mango, marzipan, papaya, sweet tobacco, banana, sweet malt, blossom honey, vanilla, brown sugar, apricot, butter, hazelnut, IPA, lychee, tonka bean, white wine gums, grapes, honeydew melon and wax
    • Finish
      Wax, almonds, honeydew melon, pear, apricot, vanilla, medium to long

  4. Segens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nose: thicker than the 2014 Munich Edition, full of apricots and brown sugar
    Palate: apricot jam & peaches
    Finish: Very long again with apricots & green tea

    This is a really good dram for 8y - if you have the money and you want to try something good from Chichibu you should clearly select this one compared to Munich - fruit basket where the apricots are very dominant. My hope is that we might enjoy these Chichibus in a few years for a reasonable price.
